When I read Steven’s I said outloud “Who is Morone?” but then immediately realized what he meant. Initially though, I totally thought it was some bizarre nickname I didn’t hear about yet. I fail. Or maybe, Steven just ultra failed.
Juliana: Hey Lee, I heard Yao Ming quit basketball and went back to China.
Lee: Why Yao Ming in China?
Juliana: Oh, I thought Wyoming was in the Americanaland, but I will always know from now on that Wyoming is in China. Thanks Lee, I’m goin to give you a big wet kiss for that wonderful nugget of enduring knowledge.
I can kind of see her point of view… Wyoming in a Chinese accent does make sense, and it’s kind of an obscure state for non-Americans (at least here anyways).
It’s the “aw.. you in China?” comment I love; its as if she knew for a fact that Wyoming was in China, no hesitation. If someone said an unknown place to me, I’d probably ask where it was, rather than picking a random country in the world and assuming it’s there.
@DanR – That’s not true at all. I have several friends on facebook who’s first names are lowercase. Some with last names. Some with their whole names lowercased. Facebook does not do anything like that…you probably just don’t have any friends on there that have lowercased names, but Facebook will allow them.
I just love the way “morones” blame the current President for longstanding foreign policy decisions. Right up there with people blaming him for the economy. I believe the LAST President is the one who took us from a budget surplus to huge deficits. But the whackos never seem to be able to remember that.
It’s cool. I live in Wyoming and people forget we exist all the time. Our entire state has the same amount of people as a small-ish city, so that’s forgiveable, but the nature/skiing/snowboarding here is pretty awesome.
@ #14 & #15 thanks, possibly my bad then. Although, curiously enough there’s not a single forename or surname in my meager 190 facebook friends list. Some of these people I wouldn’t expect to get it right, but this could be because I’m a cynic.
Or perhaps it’s just English (UK) Facebook that makes this correction of names?
My deepest symapthies for all those Americans who have to admit to living on the same continent with these fuckwits. I truly feel very sorry for you. That’s not to say England isn’t without it’s fuckwits either. So I truly empathise with you on this score.
Come on now, you can’t expect her to remember the names of ALL the states now, can you? That’s quite the burden. There are plenty of Canadians who don’t know where PEI is and we have only 10 provinces and 3 territories to remember.
Those Chinese are crafty buggers. Not only have they taken over Wyoming, but by 2018, they will be the majority population in B.C. Who knows when it’s gonna turn into a hostile take-over of North America!
Soup, if your cute little poem was a jab at the Matthew Shepard incident, I think it’s about time that society stopped generalizing the population of an entire state – even a small one like Wyoming – for a single event that happened years ago. My University holds a week long social justice conference every year to commemorate the tragedy, and we have multiple GLBT support groups on campus and throughout the state. This state has lower crime rates – hate crimes included – than any other state. Even per capita, we are 44 of 50 in the major index crimes.
Unless, of course, you were just trying to make a silly rhyme, in which case, nevermind, we cool.
I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq and everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education over here in the U.S., should help the U.S., uh, should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.
I had a guy ask my dad where we were from. We told him Tennessee. He asked if that was close to Canada. I looked at him and said no its in the southern United States. He looked so confused and asked if we lived next to the Atlantic Ocean and I sighed telling him that it’s about 400 miles from the ocean he was still confused so i had to pull out a map and showed him where we were located.
We were at Yellowstone National Park at the time. Sad thing was he was from Atlanta, Georgia, an hour and a half away from Chattanooga where i live.
@ Mario and Dreddy’s link #13, I want to move to China someday and open a restaurant called “Wok, Don’t Run”
thank you LB, that is all.
I’ll say only this for the posts, I love stupid people. whenever I feel a bit down, I come to LB, and I feel better in no time.
Sorry for the troll people, but while acknowledging that Juliana might be retarded, you should know that it has been said that the name “Wyoming” really came from Chinese people. By this man : http://www.1421.tv/ Very interesting book.
Sorry for the grammar, english is not my language.
^ HAHAHAHAHA. Now no one will see your annoying God quote. Pages and pages of your tag line…grrr! I’m sure God (and His son!) will appreciate the many hours of missionary work your are clocking in on lamebook.
